Leg pain

I have been experiencing joint pain, muscle pain, cramping, swelling and stiffness in my left leg for over a month - in my knee, behind my knee and in my calf.  It is worse at end of day.  It often feels as if my leg won't support me when I stand from a sitting position.  I do not recall injuring my leg.  I have tried heat & ice packs and massage - all of which offer some temporary relief.

Dear hejole:  I am so sorry you're having these problems.  As your symptom could be caused by a number of problems, I'd recommend you see a doctor.

We are all chronic pain patients.  Maybe someone will recognize your symptoms.  But we are not doctors.  I really feel you need a doctor to look at this.

Good luck to you.  Please keep us updated on your condition.
